How to play the Bunny Hop Relay Race
- Divide the children into teams and have each team line up behind their start line. They cannot run, skip, or walk.
- The first player from each team hops like a bunny to the finish line, and then turns around and hops back to their team.
- Once they reach their team, they tag the next player in line, who then hops to the finish line and back.
- The race continues in this way until all players from one team have completed the race.
- The first team to have all their players complete the race wins!
If a player falls down or loses their balance, they must get back up and continue hopping from where they left off. Players must tag the next player in line before they can start hopping back to their team. If a player tags the next player in line before they reach the finish line, the player must return to the start line and hop again.
- Obstacle Course: Set up an obstacle course along the race path, such as cones to hop around, tunnels to crawl through, or hurdles to jump over.
- Blindfolded Bunny Hop: Blindfold one or more players on each team and have them rely on their teammates to guide them to the finish line and back.
- Relay Race with an Egg: Have each player carry an egg on a spoon as they hop to the finish line and back. If they drop the egg, they must return to the start line and start again.
- Bunny Hop Tag: Instead of tagging the next player in line, the player must tag a player on the other team before returning to their team.
Bunny Hop Relay Race is a fun and active Easter game that children of all ages can enjoy. With these rules and variants, you can mix it up and keep the game exciting for everyone.
